Why Is She Called Snoozey? || October Diary


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I'm glad there was such kind support for my diary idea and I'm glad you were all so chilled about the 'no pressure' approach. I'm going to go at this like a nervous new boyfriend. All good intentions but big fears of commitment and a good chance of messing things up. Heh. 

Today was Friday (I'm going to always sleep on my posts before I upload them) and I'd say, a good day. 



Friday's are my lie-in days because Matt has Darcy and takes her to school and so I hit the snooze button til 9.45 before getting up and finding my Auntie downstairs pottering about and putting flowers in vases. I do love that she has keys and does these things!

Katie Snooks (or 'Snoozey' as I like to call her, not because she sleeps a lot but because Matt once mis-heard her nickname of 'Snooksy' and said, 'Why is she called Snoozey??!?'. It stuck) had stayed over night so it was nice to have a little visitor in my house. My home always feels better with people in it. I don't always want constant interaction but I do really, really love the sound of someone else just being around. My friend Drew stayed last week and I was reminded of how much I just love hearing someone on their laptop or knocking on someone's door in the morning to wake them up (I'm sure he just loved that) and plan the day. I'm a social hermit haha. 

After buttered bagels and some morning TV, we filmed a couple of videos (Katie is now helping me out every month with filming so that I can make better content, it's exciting to me to be able to stretch my ideas further and try new things) and brainstormed some ideas for November. It feels really good to be so creative. I'm already thinking about Christmas videos ideas so do leave some in the comments if you have any requests. 

Katie left in the afternoon and after a super full week, I just flopped. I was going to watch a netflix docu (I'm obsessed with documentaries), but instead I just fell asleep. I must have really needed it. 

After wiping under my eyes (I think I cry in my sleep because after a nap I'm a total mess) I headed out the door and spent the evening at Matt's. I miss Darcy on his days so it was lovely to have cuddles with her and then lovely to have chinese and chitchats with him. It's quite hard being friends with someone you have so much history with because you have to draw new lines and your love changes but I think we both have a desire to do it. I also know that it's so, so good for Darcy. She is so well adjusted to life and every day we work hard towards making her life as sweet as possible. 

A couple of highlights from today-

My phone ran out of charge at about 10am and I just didn't bother plugging it in. All my texts, calls and emails come through my laptop as well so I wasn't unreachable but it was quite liberating to not constantly check and scroll through stuff. I didn't take it to Matt's (nor my laptop) so I was entirely present in the whole evening and it was great. I'm definitely going to make a more concerted effort to rely less on that little technology rectangle!

As I drove back from Matt's the moon was so huge and so orange. I liked it a lot. 

---

And there we have it. My not that thrilling day! Tomorrow the gang arrive for a weekend of fun so I'm excited for that. Now it's bubble bath and bedtime. 

Toodlepip!

  4. Sounds like a great time if you ask me! Darcy will really thank you and Matt later for staying friends, it's not fun growing up with a messy divorce. She's very lucky and I have so much respect for you and Matt for being able to do these things like Firday night chinese food hang outs with Darcy, I know it isn't easy.
    I love the diary idea, and I loved the first one!
    And I agree on the cell phone thing, I noticed a lot of my anxiety comes from ym phone and being constantly reachable.

  5. That sounds like a really lovely day and a very positive attitude towards technology or a lack of it in order to spend more quality time with those around you. Will definitely have to consider doing that one day if I can persuade myself to do it. I enjoyed reading this style post. I'm also looking forward to the signing next week when I can finally meet you. Xxx

  9. I think it is very brave to share your feelings and thoughts in this diary and I really enjoy the intamacy of it. I might even enjoy this more than your vlogs, because I feel like your friend and not a viewer. And isn't that the most wonderful part of beeing a sprinklerino, feeling like a big group of friends?

  11. I'm loving this diary style already! The thought of going a whole day without my phone is unnerving which is ridiculous really, I need to try and rely on it less. xx

  13. As much as I adore you and love your videos... I don't think a more professional approach is quite the best thing, not just for you but any youtuber/blogger. The whole point of youtube is that you are relatable people and I've never found a problem with your videos, they've always been my favourites to watch, and you've been my favourite youtuber for a long time. Regardless, it's so lovely to see Darcy grow up in such a loving environment :)

  28. Sounds like a lovely day, I found that when I left my phone at home by mistake the other day I found it quite liberating not constantly checking my phone - I hadn't realised how much I actually do that on a day to day basis.

    1. A broken marriage can be one of the most painful things to heal from and can take a very long time to heal. During these times it can feel like the whole world could light up in flames and it still couldn't compare to the pain inside. My name is Nicole Cottrell form UK, I have been in great bondage for almost 2 years suffering in the hands of a cheating husband, we were happy and leaving well until he meant his old time girl friend and he started dating her outside our marriage before you knew it he stopped caring and taking care of his own family to the extent that he was planning to get married to her and divorce me, i cried and reported him to his family but he never listened to any one but to cut my story short i came in search for a real spell caster who could destroy their relationship and make him come back to me and our 2 kids on my search i saw people making testimony on how their marriage where restored by Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack i pick his email and i narrated my story to him and he agreed to help me and after performing a spell on the second day both of them had a quarrel and he beat his girlfriend up and he came home begging for me and our little kids to forgive him that his eyes are clear now that he will never do any thing that will hurt his family again and promise to be a caring father and never cheat again. I am so happy that i did not loose him to the girl. all appreciation goes to Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack for he is a Great spell caster and to whom this may concern if you have a cheating husband or wife or you need your ex lover back again. you can as well email him on { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }, online love problem solution 100% Guarantee

  41. My name is Mr Frank Silver,I live in Mexico,and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago,to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back,but all to no avail.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster,and i quote.“There’s someone who can handle your situation,he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting,i will like you to contact him with his email,which is as follows.”Ekpiku spell temple”. I never believed in spell casting,but he convinced me and i had no choice than to follow his advice,because i never dream of loosing my lovely wife.And that’s how i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my wife back a day after.so i never believed,until when i got home,the next day,my wife called me to inform me that she was coming back…..So amazing!! That’s how i got my wife back through spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how it was before.One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by “Ekpiku spell temple”. So! my advice for you out there is to visit this same website,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back,to have a happy family.THANKS.... HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com : CONTACT HIM TODAY VIA THIS EMAIL ADDRESS: Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com AS HIS POWERS ARE SO STRONG AND VERY EFFECTIVE AND HAS NO BAD EFFECT INSTEAD IT HAVE A VERY GOOD RESULT AFTER CASTING THE SPELL. Ekpikuspelltemple@live.com or view his websit http://ekpikuspelltemple.webs.com/
